Khullam Khulla Piracy.
Also, the Scorpio headlamps are very popular with inter-city bus operators. You see so many of them with such headlights.

cheers:
Forgive me,but what/who is a premium cargo operator? and is this as big a segment to warrant a completely new platform? in the Indian context, please.

Seems Tata Motors is working on the next generation Ace. Saw a few of these testing around Nigdi in Pune. No pictures yet. What I could see though was they have replaced the round headlamp with a rectangualr wrapround headlamp unit with integrated indicators. rear loading deck looked standard and had lot of water filled cans for testing purpose. will try to post pictures if I get any.

Guess this one is a natty body-building job on a regular LEYLAND vestibule bus. They are dime a dozen in Bangalore. The front engine gives it away

Vestibules are a big no-no these days especialyl due to the poor fuel economy and conjsted roads. esp in the city of mumbai where BEST recently scrapped all of its vestibule buses. some of them were as new as6-7 years old.

Poor FE? But they also carry almost double the passengers right.
I think double deckers make a lot more sense if not for those low hanging branches.

The information is not available on the web and when you walk into showrooms, they don't respect you if you are not chewing paan and have a pot belly.

Today saw a Piaggio Ape fourwheeler mini truck in Delhi. This is the first that I have seen. It was followed by Force Motors fourwheel mini truck as they passed me.

None of them looked as sturdy or good looking as the TATA Ace.

Sorry couldn't take any pics as they passed me before I could take my mobile out.
